Treating bedwetting in children with severe communication disorders

treating bedwetting - TheraPee blog - bedwetting help
One of the main characteristics of children with broad-spectrum developmental disorders (PDD), is communication difficulties. In these cases, the child does not relate to his caregivers at all, and acts like they do not exist. It is almost impossible to use therapeutic tools which are based on a therapist-patient relationship. In extreme cases, when the therapist and the therapeutic environment have no added value to the therapeutic process, the presence of the child in the treatment room has no function whatsoever.

However, there are cases in which children with special needs convey a lack of interest in the treatment, but in fact “perceive” the therapist’s words to a satisfactory degree. The therapist must be skilled enough to correctly diagnose the patient’s degree of attention given.

The entire bedwetting treatment process is done through the mediation of the parents. Since behavioral therapy does not use cognitive elements alone, these children can be treated by using elements that do not require the use of cognitive ability.

In these cases, the bedwetting alarm treatment focuses on the subconscious mechanism of reflexes. This mechanism can be activated by conditioning the reflex mechanism. Such bedwetting treatment works on the reflex mechanism that does not require the ability to communicate. This specific bedwetting treatment is usually longer, because the child’s learning process is slower and requires a lot of patience from the parents.
